Alberta Health Care

Alberta Health covers annual eye exams for children from ages 0-18 and for adults aged 65 and up.

Alberta Health now also covers Albertans of all ages for visits related to medical eye problems, such as eye infections, trauma, eye diseases, or other medical eye related concerns.

During these visits, Alberta Health does allow the glasses prescription to be checked, and only relevant testing will be done (this is NOT a full exam). If you have any concerns about your eye health or vision that you feel needs attention, other than needing glasses, Alberta Health will often, but not always, cover this examination.

Examples of such problems include eye trauma, conjunctivitis (pink eye), eye infections, ocular allergies, feeling something in the eye, seeing floaters or flashes of light in your vision, eye pain and so forth.

Alberta Health also realizes the benefit of annual dilated health examinations for those with diabetes of any age. Alberta Health will pay for these visits as well. During these visits, the glasses prescription will not be checked. Our doctors will then send a report to your family doctor informing them about the presence or absence of diabetic related problems in the eye.

***These types of visits are separate from your regular complete eye examination (which Alberta Health does not cover for those between ages 19 and 64). If you have diabetes, please call today to book an annual dilated eye examination.

Currently, Alberta Health does not cover the cost of glasses unless you meet certain criteria. If you are over the age of 65, Alberta Health will possibly contribute a certain amount towards glasses depending on your income.

Eye See… Eye Learn® (ESEL) is a children’s vision initiative funded by Alberta Health designed to ensure eye health and/or vision problems are not a factor in preventing children from reaching their maximum learning potential.

The success of the ESEL program relies on the involvement of both parents and teachers. Each fall, kindergarten teachers send a parent information package home with each of their students. Parents are encouraged to book an appointment for their child to have their eyes examined. The program has gained endorsement from every public and separate and Francophone school division in Alberta.

Free eyeglasses

Due to the generous donations of industry sponsors we are able to offer to kindergarten children from participating school divisions – one Free pair of eyeglasses if they are prescribed by an eye doctor.
